More happy days in Tenerife

The long stopover in Tenerife allowed participants in Barbados 50 to enjoy a rich program of events and activities laid on by the local sponsor, the Port Authority of Tenerife. There were free passes on the capital’s sightseeing buses and tickets to a concert of film scores as part of the annual festival of film music.


Kelly of the yacht Jiyu invited all participants to take part first in a practical lesson of sushi making and then in sampling the final results.

Sushi making for all ages (and genders)

It’s so much fun!

Professional diving instructor Luc Callebaut of the Cornell Sailing Events team took all children in the fleet to a practical lesson of diving and snorkelling in the Royal Tenerife Yacht Club swimming pool.

Here come the divers!

The highlight of the Tenerife sojourn was a welcome party in the elegant premises of the Royal Tenerife Yacht Club where each crew was presented with a souvenir plaque of the event and every child received a personal present from the Port Authority of Tenerife.
